Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> Read the HILARIOUS books that inspired the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films! </p> <p> Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup's father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the Hope and the Heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne - but most of the time Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy, finding it hard to be a Hero. </p> <p>Hiccup Haddock Horrendous the Third just wants a nice PEACEFUL birthday. But Hiccup's dad wants to steal the prized How to Train Your Dragon book, and prove that his Hooligans are just as good as the Bog Burglars - except Hiccup's dragon Toothless has EATEN it!</p> <p>So when Camicazi suggests stealing a copy from the grim Meathead Public Library, it seems like a good idea. BUT IT ISN'T! The library is guarded by the Horrible Hairy Scary the Librarian, four hundred Meathead Warrior Guards AND their Driller-Dragons . . .</p> <p>Will Hiccup survive - or is he DOOMED on his own birthday?</p> <p>ALSO INCLUDES A DRAGONESE DICTIONARY!</p> <p>READ ALL 12 BOOKS IN THE SERIES!<br> You don't have to read the books in order, but if you want to, this is the right order:<br> 1. How to Train Your Dragon<br> 2. How to Be a Pirate<br> 3. How to Speak Dragonese<br> 4. How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse<br> 5. How to Twist a Dragon's Tale<br> 6.
